Watermelon Mint & Basil Salad with Feta

This summer NAKANO is encouraging us to splash it on! That’s right, just go ahead and splash their gluten free rice vinegars on veggies, pasta salads, grilled fish and chicken, and more.

Inspired by some feta cheese and a gigantic seedless watermelon that my husband bought at Costco, I came up with this watermelon salad dish. My splash of NAKANO natural rice vinegar, which has no sodium or sugar, and  contrasts well with the sweetness of the watermelon and the saltiness of the feta. However, it’s the addition of mint and basil that make this dish feel like summer to me.
